5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome fun 9 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is brilliant and it's a suprise that so few have actually played it. I turned to this after being bored to tears by Gears, MoH, CoD etc. This is colourful, fast, clever, stylish, and rock hard - even on 'normal'. It's a game where you are expected to die a thousand deaths before figuring out how to get around any particular boss. That said, no matter how hard it is it remains highly addictive and great fun throughout. This is a game that should feature in anybody's top ten.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun 30 Oct 2010
By Simon
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is like an old school 2D shooter brought into the 3D world. The action just doesn't stop and really gets the pulse racing. Admittedly it is a short one player game but the replay value is great; especially when you get more confident with the moves and start sliding under bosses instead of shooting at them from a distance! Good weapon system, loads and loads of action and some of the most hilarious cheesy dialogue in years (deliberate I hope). Games like this don't come along often and its a shame.

Fast, frenetic and fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent shooter. 6 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've really enjoyed this game and have to defend it against the negative review from a senior (40+) gamer. I'm one of them too and have played pretty much every shooter going prior to this, starting with Space Invaders. Yes this game is derivative but when you take the best bits from a bunch of great games and blend them together with style, you end up with something special. Elements of Halo, Gears, Lost Planet, Killzone and older shooters like Area 51, Project Snowblind, Red Faction, Max Payne and Mace Griffin are all mixed together with a large splash of Japanese style squeezed from old Capcom classics. The balancing of the action is superb. Just when you've wiped out a couple of super sized bosses and giant robots, you get a reminder of your fraility when you take on half a dozen robot grunts - four go with head shots, a fifth is kicked acrobatically, only for the last to take you out with a well place blow to the reactor on the back of your suit. I also love the weapons. As you pick up ammo, fill any weapon and the next ammo collected for that weapon type rewards with a stats boost. Certain weapons fare better on certain enemies. It took me a while to realise the benefits of weapons like the disc launcher. The old favourite, the sniper rifle if very effective with a great zoom but ammo limitations to stop things getting boring. Face off against the big boss and hear him say "aim carefully" when you pull up the scope. Rocket launchers can do some serious damage but the collision detection is fantastic. You'll see in super slo-mo your rockets getting dodged and deflected last second just as much as you will shoot enemy rockets out of the air. The sliding on your knees gimmick works so well, it becomes fundamental to your gameplay and totally justifies its presence. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Best game no-one played 2011 20 Jun 2011
By Jim McM
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
This game won the 2010 gamespot "best game no-one played". Directed by Shinji Mikami, it's a chaotic re-imaginined splicing of Resi 4 and Halo: combat evolved. Fights consist generally of swarms of smaller robots which each have a fairly good chance of taking you down one-on one up close, and massive bullet-hell bosses which in some cases can launch an insta-kill attack right you when you wipe out their health! It's a good job you have a reserve of time-slowing and slide-running tricks at your disposal to even the score. The game's very linear but this suits its combat and style-focus very well, borrowing a points system from the likes of Devil May Cry and Bayonetta. I personally loved the light sci-fi story, which is kind of an enjambment of metal gear solid and halo (lone DARPA operative sent to link up with troops and repel an invasion of russian robots on a ring-shaped planetoid). Some people have complained that it's not so hot in this department, but I thought that the characters of sam and ivanova were great (okay, I wanted to be sam and I'd definately at least try it on with ivanova). Finally, it's fairly short too - but if you're looking for a few evenings of great gameplay ideas, what-the-hell moments and excellent third-person shooting, you can't do better.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST GAME EVER! 3 May 2011
By Angela
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a big fan of Halo Reach and other first person shooter games, so I was not so sure about buying this third person shooter game. But it is amazing! The story is so good it should be a film and the gameplay is more fun and addictive than any other game I have played! The graphics in the cutscenes are incredibly life-like (like a film, hint), and the graphics in the game itself are great aswell! The rating 15, in my opinion, is slightly high. I think a twelve probably would have been fine: There are one or two swear words in the opening cutsene and there is a little bit of blood in the final cutscene, but that is it. You do not even fight people, you fight robots. Overall: my new favourite game. Shame there is no online, though.
